During last 5 days six Automeris belti zaruma males (Ecuador) have eclosed. There are 4 male and 5 female pupae left and I am hoping for a copulation and eventual eggs. I presently have 3 live males under light while hoping for female soon. Which is best to hold live males while waiting for female: leaving under light at room temperature or placing in the refrigerator crisper. Which keeps males alive and healthy the best for a later successful copulation?
Finding new offers of eggs and cocoons/dolls of tropical butterflies. In addition, high-quality breeding and flight cases are available.
